It's somewhat-normal (it's to be expected, but it's also not happening to everyone). The best thing to do is to increase the voltage a little bit and try again. Keep increasing and trying again until it doesn't get artifacts.

Also, there are 2 ways to find out which card number you have:
  1. It's printed on the box
  2. Open your case and look

Are the artifacts an issue? You don't seem to be reacting very favorably to it, what do you think? Flash it to whatever bios you'd like to have default clocks and volts with. They're pretty much all the same, just a little difference here and there with clocks and volts. At the end, it's what you prefer.

Sad I couldn't jump on this. I wound up going EVGA 470.

They're great cards, but I've had a bit of trouble with mine. I had to RMA one because it couldn't run without artifacting even on stock clocks. The other one has the "ticking fan" issue and it seems to do it at any speed above 57%.



Has anyone implements some kind of fix for the fan yet? Can it be remounted, I wonder.

It's been speculated that taking the card apart and putting it back together might help since applying pressure to the card at a certain point (I forgot which point) silences it.

Just picked up one of these bad boys by winning a contest at quakecon a couple of days ago. They literally handed it to me out of one of their rigs on the floor. LOL

MSI GTX465 Twin Frozr II Golden Edition #0190


Thinking about SLIing two of these bad boys. I haven't had a chance to read all this. I checked my memory chips under the heat-sink and there are definitely 10 of them. Are all of the MSI golden edition gtx 465's capable of 470 bios barring that they didn't lock it because of some of the chips being a dud?

Thanks in advance. I will try to start reading this long thread.

Yup, all of them are unlockable, I think this is intentional on MSI's part.

Man, congrats on winning one of these!! And you have a low number card, so it should OC better!

I need to look into this. It was very annoying during a Heaven run at 800/2000, but my card didn't get above 70 C!

As myself and many other have said, we think these cards were meant to be 470s and were just binned as 465s because they may not have been stable with the correct clocks and voltage. That being said, they are a steal (if you can get them for $259, like most here) and they actually seem to overclock pretty nicely.


Also, I'll add you to the list.

Guys, I thought I should post this, just noticed it on NCIX. Apparently all of these DO NOT unlock.

Hey Frosty: does it make that noise at all fan speeds, or just in a certain range?

If it's in a certain range, then it can be avoided.

Whoa, congratulations!

And yeah, it's pretty much a guaranteed unlock!
